The staff are very friendly at this hotel in this tiny village. The hotel has a lovely spa pool, sauna and steam-room. All the meals are buffet apart from those in the Bistro. The food is basic but good. The Aurora lounge is a disappointment as there is no way you can see the Northern lights from it as it faces onto the lit car-park and it is poorly furnished. We wanted a room at the back with a hope of seeing the lights from a balcony. Instead we had one overlooking the car-park so too much light pollution and no balcony.

... all the Finns we spoke to were supporting Argentina – perhaps their past unfortunate history with Germany had something to do with it?
Walking back to our cabins at something before one that night/morning, of course it was still very bright as the sun was evident behind the hills, we were spoiled by the sight of a beautiful, very large full moon. Apparently it’s called a super-moon, as it is somewhat closer to the earth that usual, hence it’s large ...
... us that these were the tables! So after settling comfortably on reindeer skins with a cup of coffee or tea, he told us about his life with the reindeer and I must confess it was fascinating. They lose 40% of their stock to brown bears, wolves, wolverines and lynxes- but as all these species are protected from Brussels they cannot do anything about it and the numbers increase year on year. Some areas of Finnland had lost all ...
In the afternoon me and mum skiied to the ice restaurant where we had dinner last night. As it was 'off piste' up a steep hill going up was hard work. Coming down was less so but we spent most of it on our bums...oops! I think we skiied about 7km in total but I'm not quite sure. Everyone else back at the hotel was very impressed though. On the way there we saw some Siberian Jays - they look quite plain until they fly and you ...
... we waited 2 and a half hours in -21 degrees and only got a tiny glow. As my camera lens had frosted over and the lights seemingly going away we went back to the hotel and undressed thinking we might pop out again later only for our aurora alert to go off. Frantically got dressed again to get back to the lake and seeing an amazing show but with no camera! Aaaaaah! Bitterly disappointed so am currently praying to any deity/spirit/whatever that we get a second chance.
... curling up in bed for our last sleep in Lapland feeling very satisfied from our adventures....
A few hours into our sleep there was a loud BEEP. The Aurora Alarm. So off we went again throwing our warm layers on over our pyjamas and dashing out into the cold night air. We scurried along the path near our chalet to get away from any light pollution for the best view. And there it was again, that now familiar green glow in the black night sky. Nothing as ...
